Shop Their Styles

We asked five fashionable brides to share how they created their wedding-day looks, then found similar items you can use to make each your own.

The glamour of 1930s-era movie stars and Art Deco artist George Barbier's fashion illustrations served as inspiration for Liesl's wedding style.

Classic and elegant, Alicia's look was surprisingly easy to put together, she says. To top her Birnbaum & Bullock dress, she borrowed her sister-in-law's veil.

"I wanted a dress that was fun and cute and not your typical wedding gown," says Geri, "so my mom made it. She didn't even use a pattern, but it was exactly what I'd imagined."

"I wanted to look unique, but still like my natural self," says Jenn, who worked with a seamstress to create an original design for her silk taffeta gown.

For her outdoor summer wedding, Kat wanted a look that was pretty and natural, with vintage touches. She had her strapless Jim Hjelm gown altered to create a sweetheart neckline, and her seamstress fashioned a belt from the extra fabric and a clasp Kat found on eBay.
